Veteran and well-known Washington DC based experimental artist Violet (Jeff Surak) presents on con-v this long track, his latest work; "okraina" is a nocturnal piece, a trip to the end of night.

" Okraina was constructed from field recordings made in December 2003 while on tour in Russia and Ukraine. Gas heated kitchen pipes, men sleeping in a train compartment, passing trains, light bulbs, soviet refrigerators, train toilets are the sources. The sounds where minimally mixed and processed, and the stranger sounds are more a result of strategic microphone placement and the lofi microcassette recorder than software".
